That we're a fun team to watch again and players are clearly developing for the first time in years. The kids have passion again, which is contagious.

Not very often this happens but on Sunday at the same time I had UVA on ESPN and UCONN on ESPN2 (or vice versa...cant' remember) and it was probably 70/30 watching a UCONN blowout instead of a tight game for a top 10 UVA. That ratio would have been way different the past few years

thankful not to have to carry around one of those grocery store plastic bags to clean up a mess the dawgs left on a sidewalk, and we have to pick it up before someone sees it. now, we can poop anywhere, and it will be on tv as an espn highlight. hmmm, bag ban? no more clean-ups? kismet!

They are starting to evolve into a Uconn/Dan Hurley 10 deep dynamo that looks like a relentless pressure defense and fast break offense. Run opponents off the floor by the second half and be the kind of team that others don't enjoy playing. Couldn't be more grateful at this point of the season. Thanks Huskies!

For all the changes that transformed them from looking / playing like Turkeys.

Superb recruiting and player development by coach Hurley and the staff. These guys are no longer wearing a losing mentality like underwear. They believe they're winners!! They believe they will restore UConn's former glory!! :D

I'm thankful for a UCONN Men's program with a talented coaching staff and a team that not only finally has some bona fide talent but has some depth along with talent between classes. We are finally setting up nicely of getting back to the UCONN standard of basketball year over year. The wait has been long and the pain severe. We are at the beginning of our next 10 to 15 year run competing for conference and national titles. So excited! So thankful! :)

Thankful that we have a team good enough for us to be talking about rather than everyone being at each other's throats. (Chief doesn't count, he transcends common ground).

Jibsey nailed mine. I'm glad UConn basketball is fun again. For a while there it wasn't.

Hurley and the coaches are great. The freshmen are exciting and full of potential. The jump of the sophomore class was all we could have hoped for. Everyone seems to have a role now. Those are all good things.

But in the end it all comes down to being excited about the games. That's back and I'm grateful for it.

I am thankful that hope has been resurrected. Fun has replaced pain and angst.
I'm also thankful for this place where I can share the joy and the pain with others. Thanks mods, at al.
And thank you folks. Even for the dumbest arguments.

The Insight, comedic relief, and drama this site brings to its readers. I swear this Forum could be a tv show! The question is which actors play our members?

I was going to say almost the same thing. I am thankful there is hope that UConn men's basketball can return to winning ways and national prominence and create new history and get good recruits in a great conference after it appeared the losing would never end and we could fade into oblivion nationally as a footnote in history and get mediocre players in a terrible conference FOREVER. I am thankful we are BACK!!!!!!!
